AA Bondy @ Union Hall in February (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
AA Bondy

" 'How Will You Meet Your End?' by A. A. Bondy - A dark musical tale that seems to reach out from another time, this is a song I can -- and do -- leave on repeat for long stretches. For both "So Cold the River" and "The Cypress House," I turned to this song often because I found its haunting lyrics and melody to be perfect tone-setters." [Michael Koryta]
A.A. Bondy and JBM will be playing shows together around North America starting in August (full list of dates below).

A.A. Bondy then headlines his own show at Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday, October 6th. No opener announced yet. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon.

Much before that, A.A. Bondy has a NYC show scheduled with Elvis Perkins in Dearland and Arms (previously 'special guest') on Sunday, June 26th at Barge Park as part of Northside Festival. Tickets are still on sale for that. (He's also at the Newport Folk Festival this year.)

JBM (stage name of Jesse Marchant) plays a Bondy-less CD release show July 27th at Mercury Lounge (tickets) for his new album, Not Even in July, which comes out the same day on Partisan Records. Clips from that are streaming on the label's site.

A.A. Bondy played Toronto's Great Hall on June 18th as part of NXNE. A video from that set and all JBM/AA Bondy tour dates are below...

isn't this the guy Jake White roughed up?

No, JW assaulted his former roommate in a public place (keep an eye out for that violent temper when his career tanks...maybe he'll rough up his model wife and he'll become the new Ike Turner).

His former roommate was in the Von Bondies--a band that at least tries to keep the Birthday Party and the Cramps on everyone's minds as the years go by.

AA Bondy effortlessly achieves the bruised Americana romanticism and Southern Gothic mystery that eludes JW's patented, Platinum selling bombast. What about that lame attempt at a narrative on the last Raconteurs record?

It's called restraint, a respect for space. And AA Bondy has that in spades.
